Year 13 A Level Results updates

Y13 exam update - 19.08.20

AQA and Edexcel have now since revised Y13 examination grades.  The grades will be emailed to your school email address this afternoon.  For all remaining exam boards, we will email the results when they arrive in school.  We have been assured by the exam boards that this will be done by the end of tomorrow.

For any students whose grades are higher than those they received on results day, UCAS are aiming to share these with universities and colleges by this Friday, 21 August.

Y13 exam update - 18.08.20

Dear Students, Parents and Carers,

As you will be aware from the news, all students in Year 13 will now have their results changed to the Centre Assessed Grades awarded by our school.

We await further guidance on how this should be done and will then inform students of their results.

I am delighted by this u-turn by Ofqual and the Government and hope that this will mean students go on to their next steps at university, further education and apprenticeships/employment with confidence, knowing they have been given a result based upon sound judgement by the teachers who know them best.

We will communicate again shortly to let you know how the CAGs will be disseminated.

Yours faithfully,

Ms K Earle, Headteacher
